Do not use the trail showed here. It will take you through private land that is set up as a hunter camp. I recommend looking here https://floridahikes.com/big-oak-trail to find out how to hike this trail.

Although the main hike paths were flooded today as of 12/24/18, my life partner and I decided to make something of our time there and venture around. Worth the drive if you're able to go a little out of your comfort zone to see interesting views and abandoned goodies off trail. We also came across friendly bats along our unique adventure. If you're an experienced hiker, it's pocket change but if you're a home body looking for adventure, go! Right now!

The whole trail isn't marked well. If you're plucky enough, you can find the old graveyard, bridge and antique chimney from a long-gone home. It's worth doing once, but be vigilant to stay on the trail.

The turn around was near the road but half of the trail is closed. But if you go to the Suwannee park they have a couple smaller trails too.

We went canoeing here in the Suwanee River. It was so calm, easy and relaxing. Highly recommended for tourists visiting Florida. I was told there are gators in the river, but I didn't see any at all during my 2-3 hour canoe trip. We went to the canoeing outpost at a place called "Spirit Of The Suwannee Music Park & Campground", they have low affordable rates for canoeing by hour, they were very knowledgeable, and one of their guys drove us to the Suwanee River a few miles away where we began our canoeing trip down the river.

Nice trail along the river. Seen some deer along the way. The road to the trailhead was rough and wet but the trail was nice

Troop 599 spent spring break traveling close to 95 miles along the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail from White Springs to Branford Florida. We stayed along the river in the campsites at river camps and state parks. We had plenty of water and made the trip in 6 days. River camps have nice shelters and amenities to make trip pleasing. Great trip. Live Oak area flooded that spring.

We really don't have many good trails down here, but this one was actually worth the trip. It was a good length for a day trip. Of course it wasn't very difficult, but it was a nice trip.
